is progressing and away the mature economic and economy as we have it pretty sound situation. well, if you compare what is happening in the u.s. in terms of the design of the framework of my economic policy, this is a totally different vision. in the u.s. you have the degree of flexibility. it's ready to intervene and to apply a very flex ability monetary policy, wearing europe the process is very cumbersome. it is a process in which the decision-making is extremely complex and we lack a proper lender for sovereign ends. this is the root of the problem today, that we have to apply fiscal policy, but we don't have a sufficiently policy. i would like certainly a lender of last resort. there is a situation for and stability in the sovereign that markets an example for that, in this chart you see the spread of the government that equally compare with germany and the spread is nearly 650 basis point. as you can all understand, it is impossible to work within a monetary union with such discrepancies between the core countries to finance themselves in european countries in this case, we have to p
in infrastructure, if we level the playing field, we will grow the economy. frankly, we have a ball and chain. it is congress. congress is holding us back. we need to change congress in two ways. we people who are more fiscally responsible. when the people who know the basics of how to work together. you will hear these things a lot tonight in my comments. i was the governor who drew top tax fraud. i had to cut $5 billion from the state budget, including my own salary. i'm the only governor in modern times who left the office with a smaller general fund budget and when i started. i know how to be fiscally responsible. my opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighti
on the economy, how does the consumer feel about the so-called recovery? we bring you new numbers on that at the top of this coming hour. and let's go to nicole. we have news on apple's mini ipad. what's the news and what's the stock doing? >> oh, the speculation is swirling. well, we'll see whether or not apple takes off the-- and goes under the the wraps here. october 23rd, the day we're looking for. this may be the day we learn a lot more about the ipad mini that we have been talking about here on "varney & company," right. stuart: when we learn a lot more, what will it be? the specs on the thing, how big, how small. >> i don't know. invitation only event. it was reported all things d on today. and we've talked about the fact that the ipad is 9.7 inches, the ipad mini based on some of the analysts who went over to asia and saw some of the displays being ordered were speculating it could be 7.8 inches, so 7.8 rather than 9.7. and so, it will be smaller and will be able to compete, obviously, more readily with the kindle fire and the other smaller types of tablets. stuart: i just
reported having jobs. senator ayotte, isn't the economy getting better? well, i think, what is disappointing about the report is the down tick we saw in unemployment is because of part-time work, for economic reasons, so people who want full-time jobs, taking lower pay, you can't support a family on part-time work. and of course we still have the sad fact that we have the lowest labor participatings rate since 1981, and if the number of people who were working or participating in the workforce were the same as when the president came into office the unemployment rate would really be 11%, so, i don't think there is any cause to celebrate, here and i think if you told the american people four years ago, that the unemployment rate is going to be 7.8%, at this point, during the president's term, i don't think anyone should be satisfied or happy with that. >> chris: governor, are you satisfied for happy. >> i don't think any of us should be happy, we want to return to full employment. and, what we have seen now is 31 months in a row, consecutive months in a row of private sector
. in a us whohold survey, 873,000 more americans reported having jobs. senator ayotte, isn't the economy getting better? >> i think what is disappointing about the report is that the downtick we saw in unemployment is because of part-time work for economic reasons so people who want full-time jobs taking lower pay. you can't support a family on part-time work. and, of course, we still have the sad fact we have the leaflet labor participation rate since 1981. if the number of people working or participating in the workforce were the same as when the president game into office the unemployment rate would really be 11%. i don't think there is cause to deliberate here. if you told the -- to celebrate here. if you told the american people it would be 7% i don't think anybody would be satisfied or happy with w. that. >> we want to return to full employment but what we have seen now is 31 months in a row consecutive months in a row of private sector job gains. so, it is far better to be gaining jobs than losing 800,000 a month as we were when george bush was in office. we still have a long way
that the economy is a top issue, you run into a risk of focusing on too many items as opposed to jobs and economic issues. host: there will also be a foreign policy debate coming up on october 22. is this a sort of preview of that debate? will this be a preview for the obama camp to see what they will be talking about, coming up? caller: it will be a chance for governor romney to do a preview, yes. the thing that i think occurred many times before, romney camp -- came out and named a lot of these things fairly forcefully. from what we saw yesterday, this will be an even stronger reputation of his view on those issues. getting out on the campaign trail at these paul ryan events, particularly when it comes to the issue of things like foreign aid and how this country deals with the resources when it comes to other places, we do not exactly see that relationship being reciprocal. it is something that has gotten a surprising amount of attention on the trail over the last few weeks. it could be an area where the mitt romney campaign is looking forward as they decided to hold this speech. host: one piece
well proven by what he did in florida he will win the election. the economy is horrible the world is taking advantage of us. he has to be sharp and on his game. ladies and gentlemen, the one and only donald trump. >> chris: i'm chris wallace. a new jobs report on the first presidential debate. shakeup. the race for the white house. unemployment drops below 8% for the first time in 44 months. both sides say romney budget any wins debate one. with 30 days until the election we will discuss where the campaign stands now. with republican senator kelly ayotte and democratic governor martin o'malley. then a debate guru explains the dos and don'ts when 67 million people are watching. we'll ask brett o'donnell to review what obama and romney did in the first debate and what they should do better next time. plus this week's face-off between the vice presidential candidates. we will ask our sunday panel to handicap biden versus ryan. and we go "on the trail" all right now on "fox news sunday." and h hello again from fox news in washington. big changes in the presidential race this week. the
children. what i want to think about is a future that has jobs. >> the ad goes on to say the economy is important to women. >> a victory for the obama campaign on early voting in ohio. a federal appeals court in the buckeye state just reinstated early voting on the three final days before election day. the ruling means that people in the key battle ground state can continue to cast their ballots. depending on the decision of the local border of elections that is. the obama camp filed that lawsuit arguing that everyone should have a chance to vote on those days. >> and the early voting is now under way in florida. absentee ballots are in the mail. yesterday miami-dade county mailed out 170,000 ballots. officials say voting by mail has exploded. in fact more than half of voters cast their ballots by mail or during early voting in the last general election. >>> in today's strategy talk, september jobs report came out just in the nick of time for president obama after this week's tough debate performance. but the honeymoon only lasted five minutes before a tweet by former g.e. ceo jack w
the global economy is critical. europe is our largest export market, and it is in a slow decline that will go on for some time. china finds europe as their largest export market. we have an extraordinary relationship with china, with our exports. all of this is under challenge. the fundamental issue is to understand if we get rid of uncertainty, if we step up in a clear way and decide what we're going to do about our unemployment by using energy, by expanding tourism, by working hard to change our regulatory system, and if we face the fundamental realities, we can fix this. we only need one thing. we need leadership in the white house and congress. we need leadership in the business community. >> can this come significantly down? >> you asked if this is the new normal. >> that is the choice americans are going to make on election day. i think most americans would say no. the american spirit is alive and well. that will help us grow the economy. but you have to look at some fundamentals. for manufacturers it is more expensive than any other country in the world. that is after you take out the
get this balanced budget. we must get this debt under control. this debt not only hurts our economy today with the threat of higher interest rates and a losing a dollar and much higher tax rates. we know that we are giving the students here at this academy, our children and grandchildren, a lower standard of living. we've never done that in this country before. host: vice-presidential candidate paul ryan in new hampshire at a recent event. here's what you might hear from the vice-president joe biden at tonight's debate. this is from a recent campaign stop in florida. [video clip] >> there is no quit in america, folks. ladies and gentlemen, that's why i know i'm not the only one who was offended to hear governor romney write off nearly half the country is in his statement about 47% of the people being dependent. if you read the book congressman ryan has written with two other leading young members of the republican party, they talk about -- the title of the book is "young guns," and they talk about this culture of dependency in america without acknowledging that all those people -- o
to "washington journal." as campaign 2012 hits its final month, the presidential candidates are using the economy to frame their vision for the future and what they would do for the american dream. we saw a jobs numbers that showed an unproven unemployment rate. we would like to hear your opinions. has the american dream been downsized? you can also share your opinion on social media. send us a tweet by writing @cspanwj. you can also join the conversation on facebook. or you can e-mail us. the front page of "the washington post"looks out with the call life of a salesman. he always finds to -- he always seems to find optimism in the worst of circumstances. here is another chance. the story profiles this man building and installing pools. how he had to downsize his business, cut employees, and work even harder to find jobs. let's take a look at the content. it says -- what do you think? has the picture of the american dream changed? national journal took a look it how americans are perceiving the economic situation right now, not just on a national level but on the personal lives, too. in a heartla
. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country's come too far to turn back now. >> so it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> you hear mitt romney pivoting talking about the real unemployment rate at 11%, so i -- i guess that's his pivot coming off the unemployment rate yesterday. randi, why does all this matter? as you mentioned off the top, the economy by far the number one issue with americans. take a look at this, from our cnn/orc international poll. we did it about a week ago before the first debate but i don't think it will change people's perceptions. by far the economy remains the top issue on the minds of americans. it's been that way since late 2007 when the u.s. economy went into a recession, and how do americans feel about which candida
think algerians would focus on surviving in the informal economy, but algeria will effectively return to the it is status quo. it'll be this big, glaring absence in north africa. the largest country in africa disengages from the international community, solutions to the instability that dr. zoubir mentioned, solutions to the instability in sir car or northern -- syria or northern mali. what would make this all the more glaring is if our worst fears about libya were to come to pass. as i mentioned before, the libyan government is very much committed to the road map they've laid out, they're very committed to the political process, but i'd like to bring you back to the middle of 2011. at the time, gadhafi's head of external security defected. and when he defected, he warned that libya would become like somalia. and at the time i think most frames of references were to mogadishu, to a black hawk down moment. and, unfortunately, we have had a black hawk down moment in benghazi. but i think he's, you know, a are nuanced guy. and what i think he was referring to was a much broader frame of
, meant to signal romney will continue to attack the president on the economy, and jobs, but, also on foreign policy and all of the issues, of being commander-in-chief. in the 2012 campaign. >> arthel: thank you very much, a big crowd waiting for mitt romney and the president had no public events today but his campaign says that it has noted stopped him from shattering a major record. carl mentioned this earlier. september fund-raising ended at $181 million. topping his previous record by nearly $70 million. it's the biggest single month haul he has had during this is re-election bid and the president said more than 1.8 million people donated last month. republicans have yet to report their september totals. >> rick: major defense budget cuts are set to automatically kick in at the end of the year and time is running out for congress to stop it from happening and it could trigger job losses as well. why is this white house advising defense contractors to ignore a law requiring them to send layoff notices to their employees? chief congressional correspondent, mike emanuel live in wa

. on the economy, biden unloaded, attacking mitt romney where president obama had not, on that video tape where romney called 47% of the american people victims who won't take responsibility for their lives. >> these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with. my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays on his federal income tax. >> reporter: ryan got personal. >> joe and i are from similar towns. he's from pennsylvania, i'm from wisconsin. you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is today? >> i sure do. >> it's 10%. >> yeah. >> you know what it was the day you guys came in? 8.5%. that's how it's going all around america. >> reporter: for a vice presidential debate, the stakes were high tonight. after mitt romney's big win in denver and president obama's no-show performance there, biden needed to stop the bleeding. ryan was going for the jugular, seeking to build the momentum republicans are feeling. >> the next time you hear them say, don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class. the tax bill is c

and the greatest peacetime expansion of our economy in the nation's history. by contrast, the decade checked by bush tax rates squandered our budget surpluses, produced net-jobs and culminated in the great recession. the lesson here is that the contrary -- is that contrary to supply ciders, the level of the top rate does not by itself dictate what happens to g.d.p. but a balanced budget aided by increased revenues just might restore confidence to investors and jump start our economy. for the third and final element of this tax reform model, we turn to investment income. it is time to reduce the sizable differential and the tax treatment of earned and unearned income. the reduction in the capital gains rate to 15% under president bush was a major contributor to the growth and wealth disparities we see today. the top 1% on average received 20% of incoming capital gains, 10 times as much as the rest of the country. capital gains makes up 60% of the income recorded by the forbes 400. the extremely low 50% rate in effect today is an allied air. it is the lowest rate on investment income since the
the united states economy. the price and economic impact would be much greater if these occurred. we hope that this paper which is a departure from the focus of most papers on the consequences of a nuclear iran or a nuclear capable iran will trigger a new discussion and enable an expanded debate on the topic. i would like to introduce michael, the foreign policy director of the bpc, a former oil analyst to boot. he directed this effort and will review some of the key findings. he will introduce our very distinguished panel. mike. >> thank you, senator. thank you everyone for coming. as the senator said, the purpose of this report is really to trigger a debate. we are not suggesting that we have all of the answers, but we wanted to introduce a new dimension to the debate about iran about preventing a nuclear iran. we are not -- focusing on the economics, we are not suggesting the economic issues should drive united states policy one way or another. but it has definitely come up in the debate. it has been raised, certainly in terms of let us say about the impact on sanctions and military, s
campaign and white house were aware that they had a very ugly economy and the comments really do not get reelected under these types of economies. they have always come across as hungrier and more aggressive than the romney campaign. in almost every respect. they were ready for a fight from the get go. >> this is what makes the debate so puzzling. the campaign has been hungry. look at the advertising they have been running. really smart advertising. >> who is running the obama campaign? david axelrod? obama? who is running the romney campaign? is the family intervening? >> from the white house, david pluft was the campaign manager in 2008 when they were underdogs. now the senior adviser in the white house. he has the last word on most things in the campaign and in the white house. ji messina, the cam -- the campaign manager in chicago runs an organization carried on the run inside, romney, ceo. when people look back at that campaign, a big factor people will look at is how a this as a person could have created a campaign that has such fuzzy lines of accountability, a campaign management
can't, you should and don't even try. >> there's no jobs for human spirit the economy is bad. it's all my fault and i can't fix it. >> i'm betting on china. >> i'm in over my head. >> not enough money to pay the bank. and we have to move. >> you should vote for mr. romney. >> apparently one should manage to get some behind the scenes video of the president. we told you last week about for lucky donors who won a campaign contest to a dinner with president obama. at least they thought they were lucky until the bill came. >> watch would have been. not a fancy place but watch what happens when the check comes. the check is put down. the president very slyly slides it across. >> and look how much the check is. $14 trillion. 14 trillion. >> thanks everybody. that is it for this special report. >> you couldn't make it up, but why bother? there it is. i want to thank steve and just encase has the urge to start drinking of the, we have supplied them with a case of pbr. that's how he celebrates. the annual mrc dishonors award, as its winners chosen by distinguished cross-section of the vast righ
're not getting that. look, we can grow this economy faster. that's what our five-point plan for a stronger middle class is all about. it's about getting 12 million jobs, higher take home pay, getting people out of poverty into the middle class. that means going with proven pro-growth policies that we know work to get people back to work. putting ideas on the table, working with democrats, that actually works sometimes. and then -- >> vice president, could we get to that issue of what you could bring as a man, human being? i'm really going to keep you to about 15 seconds here. >> he gets 40? i get 15. >> he didn't have 40. >> let me tell you, my record stands for itself. i never say anything i don't mean. everybody knows whatever i say i do. and my whole life has been devoted to leveling the playing field for middle class people. giving them an even break. treating main street and wall street the same. holding them to the same responsibility. look at my record. it's been all about the middle class. they're the people who grow this country. we think we grow the country the middle out, not from the
. romney also believes he's going to be up to stimulate the economy picks of the economy will grow, which means receives will go. is also said that is going to be able to tax loopholes. i'm not a tax expert, but it seems to me that there's an awful lot of those loopholes, and that will help. and again when we're only talking about essentially 1.4% of% of the entire problem, it se a doable doing to fix. you can't fix it in one year. you can fix in four years for sure. so at least i try to answer your question. now, i can't just sit back and listen to some of the stuff and be told in effect well, facts matter but you, dov, you just don't know any facts. first of all, one little fact, i really wonder whether mr. panetta who talked about the smallest number of ships since 1915, said that in a letter to your former boss, senator mccain, would really be happy to give this argument is ridiculous. wasn't a republican who made that case. it was mr. panetta. number one. number two, the navy is going to be bigger because i funded the ships that are being built. it takes a few years to get them out t
to that, i think the obama campaign, they were extremely aware that they had a very very ugly economy and incumbents generally don't get reelected when these kinds of economy so i think they were -- and facts to me there would always come across as hungrier and more aggressive than the romney campaign. in almost every respect, so i think they were ready for is. >> which is what makes the debate so important. >> not the campaign. >> the campaign has been hungry. they have been aggressive. look at the advertising, really smart advertising. >> who is really running the obama campaign? is it david axelrod or is it plouffe or is it obama? is the family intervening and are they running it or who is running the campaign? >> the white house side, david plouffe was the campaign manager in a weight when they were underdogs. now the senior dicer of the white house -- what you hear is that he has pretty well the last word on most things both in the campaign and at the white house. jim messina the campaign manager in chicago runs that vast organization day today. on the romney side you have romney
't get going, the grant could expire before the work is done. >>> and an encouraging sign for the economy, at least in idaho. they say the building slump there may be over. they highlighted major construction projects where hundreds of millions are being spent in the treasure valley. and those are headlines from america's great west. >>> and officials say a drone missile they shot down may have been spying on crucial sites. they released a video of the drone flying over the southern desert. with a good day to you, duncan, israel is saying this drone may have been sent by iran and hezbollah. are you hearing anything like that? >> reporter: hey, alex, good afternoon, well, officially the israeli government has not said who they believe launched the drone, however, they cite media sources which they blame hezbollah and the media backers. officials fear the drone may have been part of an operation to spy on strategic sites in the country. and hezbollah is known to have sent israeli drones in the air space on previous occasions, in 2006, they launched a drone capable of carrying explosives int
, wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? the choice is clear. a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic growing economy that promotes opportunity and jobs? mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues. and we will not blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility and we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will reapply our founding princip principles. the choice is clear. and the choice rests with you. and we ask you for your vote. thank you. >> and thank you, both, again. thank you very much. this concludes the vice presidential debate. please tune in next tuesday for the second presidential debate at hofstra university in new york. i'm martha raddatz of abc news. i do hope all of you go to the polls. have a good evening. >> that was 90 minutes that felt like it was about nine minutes. a fast-moving intensely combative debate for the vice presidential debate this year, focused on complex substantial issues of foreign policy as much as it focused on economic and social issues, obviously they di
.8%. the president said in his weekly web address that the burden is on congress to keep the economy moving forward. nbc news white house correspondent, mike viqueira joins me now. mike, what more political fallout do you think we're going to see over the jobless numbers? >> reporter: the jobs report was both symbolic and substantiative. symbolic because it got below 8%, that's considered a threshold over which no president has ever been re-elected. and substantiative because it gets down to where the unemployment rate is -- was when president obama took office in january of 2009. and don't you know, melissa, yesterday at two campaign rallies in the battleground states of virginia and ohio, one each, the president pointed that out. here at the white house, at the campaign, campaign headquarters in chicago, they are certainly hopeful that this will change the narrative, stem some of the momentum that mitt romney has undoubtedly received. the bounce he got from what is generally regarded as his debate victory on wednesday night. a lot of the president's supporters, very disappointed in his performanc
given the economy -- >> that's not even what i'm getting at. >> people feel fundamentally better about the state of the economy. >> did i say i love jack welch? >> forget what jack welch said. i'm talking about people who are trying to say that perhaps people have given up. and if you look into the numbers of the bureau of labor and statistics put out, the number of people who are discouraged and have given up has gone down in the past year by 235,000. and in the past four years, by over 400,000. that number is being skewed out there by those who want to say that the job numbers aren't what they appear to be. long-term unemployment is still very, very high, but those people are still looking. >> the u-6 number for those cognizant. >> coming up -- >> you're right. republicans are in the dumps. you're right. >> no, they're trying to pretend the numbers that they depend on when they're good in their camp. >> you can't have it all. >> are skewed. >> i don't know. if it continues this way, i think republicans can have it all. >> they're not. not going to have it all. >> coming up -- i'm so
to the path, because it's the mechanism that'll make all the difference. >> the economy plays a significant role in recruitment and retention. will the economy coupled with talks to change military retirement pay and health care have a negative impact on retaining a professional all-volunteer force? >> i don't know. but, you know, as i travel around and visit with young soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, and i also visit the coast guard from time to time, and i ask them why'd you come in, the answers are really varied. some of them come in because they want to defend their nation, and they know the nation's at war, and then some come in, as you noted, for economic reasons. what i will tell you is it doesn't matter why they come in, but because once you get 'em and you build into them this sense of purpose and sense of belonging, another attribute, by the way, that tends to be missing in american youth as they try to figure out who and what they are. by the way, i'm not trying to recruit you, but i will tell you that i'm happy to have your kids -- [laughter] but i will tell you that one
the economy, this failing economy. >> if you can't trust in the numbers. let me make this point as a devil's advocate for people expressing skepticism on the right about these numbers. the number of new jobs found in the household survey, not the headline number of 114,000, it's an a no, ma'am mow louse number, the point is these monthly job numbers, they're estimates. it's a massive economy. they're trying to find using these statistical methods changes in a very large economy. every month afterwards the numbers get revised. they're all over the place. >> in this case they revised the earlier numbers up by some $85, 86,000. this means we have created more jobs in the previous months that have not been added. you talk about manipulation. they should have increased that number by that amount and that would have even been more accurate, but they didn't do that. that's the best estimate they had at the moment. >> right. also to the adp survey that comes out a little before the jobs numbers. it's almost always more jobs than you end up getting in the bureau of labor statistics. there's questio
that's the worst thing you can do for the poor is to have no economic growth and a terrible economy. the way you get the poor off the rolls is to get them a job. this president has done a terrible job in that regard. host: next phone call john republican. caller: he says, there's no reason to build roads in the suburbs when they put it in the cities. guest: sir, i'm not aware of that. you maybe referring to oneqrnsñf the transportation bills that passed. you confess that the funding mechanisms for those projects are very complicated. i'm not sure that i can be much help in your question. host: cleveland, ohio, democratic caller. caller: all you republicans keep saying the obama economic program didn't work. what happened, kennedy died, there was no control of the senate, you republicans filibusterrered 275 bills in 2010. they effectively killed the total obama economic agenda. we've had over the last four years the republican austerity. the vets jobs bill was filibusterrered. four republicans crafted the bill and when the bill came to the floor, 58 members on the floor, 42 rep
the world and around this country and especially in the economy. the president has said he was too polite. advisers intimate he's going to be more aggressive obviously. but still, joe biden is joe biden. he's the regular guy. joe six-pack from scranton. president obama, that's not his persona. having said all that, i think it's a fair assumption we're going to see a much more aggressive president obama on tuesday night. >> okay. mike. as always many thanks. we're getting an update on what the gop candidates are doing today in just a minute. >>> first president obama may be reaching out to younger voters next week with another appearance on "the daily show with jon stewart." stewart criticized the president's performance in that first debate so there may be a few jokes at his expense. president obama will do the show on comedy central this coming thursday, two days after the second debate with mitt romney. >>> superstar bruce springsteen is on the road this week. he's singing the praises of president obama. and on thursday the boss will be joined by former president bill clinton, another b
